Will Murphy suspend property taxes with his cool new powers?

I believe so. Either from home or in closed to public buildings.

Why would he suspend any tax?

Did the cops in your town stop working? 

Is no one at town hall working? 

Are teachers not working from home? 

 

Do you want all of these people to just stop working?

I want my property taxes reduced by the amount of savings for schools being closed.  I want teachers pay reduced to the amount of hours they have worked, and my taxes reduced accordingly.  I want school administration pay stopped because they haven’t administered anything.  Also my taxes reduced accordingly.  Reduce my property taxes by those savings and I will be happy.

Teachers are teaching online. Quite possibly spending more time than they did before to teach because they have to redo all the work they did planning around having a classroom a well as learning a bunch of new tools. 

School administrators are still dealing with budget, hire to deal with grades and regulatory compliance, and in most towns are running the continuation of nutritional support programs which are getting food and basic necessities out to families. Which might just be keeping those living from paycheck to paycheck from infecting you or breaking into your home to get said necessities. 

About the only thing they might be saving on are utilities. But given the time of year and the weather, that probably isn't much.

And busses, gas, drivers, maintenance.  
and after school and sports programs, hours. 
and in-building school lunches, supplies, staff.

What if teachers have to work more, will you support tax increase?

Administration? What experience do you have that suggests they stopped working? MY district is working overtime right now over budget issues and curriculum. 

Do you just stop maintaining a building because no one is in it? 

"Busing" is usually contracted.. good luck getting that money back..

Any other brilliant ideas?

 

I would be more prone to asking that sports savings for the spring be applied to the capital budget, and saved for a rainy day... 

 

I've taken some time to participate in these "online" BOE meetings.. and its apparent that no one has stopped working or is working less. I would suggest everyone watch them in their own districts. It's bad enough people don't ever show up to them in person, no excuses now.

Busses are likely contacted so unless this goes on for more than a year the citrate is the contract.  If not contacted maintenance and any lab payments are still due. 

How much money do you think the sports programs get from the school? 

The lunch program money had moved to the continuation if nutrition program. Which is also using the busses. 

Basically, unless it goes on a while our your school system massively funds extra curricular activities, the savings is utilities and likely there are other extra expenses.

    • Thank you for your thought-provoking response.   I still fundamentally disagree, and in particular with your notion that let the courts sort it out.  The courts have given themselves the power to interpret the Constitution, and it is as a last resort.  Just as some founding fathers disagreed with this potential power that was grasped on, I disagree, as there should be more checks and balances of lawyers in robes.  That power was not intended for them to interpret broadly, but rather on a case by case basis using the actual written laws to closely interpret the meaning.  That said, ALL members of government are expected to judiciously respect and carry forth the Constitution and its Bill of Rights.  Why, otherwise, is an oath taken?  Just like wrongful judges that legislate from the bench there are cops with that mindset... Some even toss in the notion of case law.  ` These examples illustrated of American Citizen and Constitutionally-framed police are commenting that they are noticing a trend moving away from this essential viewpoint, which I also believe in, and that cops in general are becoming more militarized and they are taught to just let it be sorted out later.  The police used to be called more often keepers of the peace and have moved much more dedicatedly from that to law enforcement, which in some few examples has possibly garnered the term of jack-booted thugs.  I am not arguing whether or not the police are needed and I am not arguing that the majority have entered the abusive realm, but I am suggesting that many do see themselves as law enforcement over peace keeper.  I am not arguing whether or not you or I feel that there is a felt need for that shift pointed out, but I AM pointing out that it has lead directly to the "Us and Them" mentality ON BOTH SIDES.   Due to the Chinese Flu response, it is becoming more apparent that our police, some of whom didn't have your Civics Teacher, but big-government propaganda taught by Leftists, don't have that mooring grounded in judicious force  tempered with their oaths.   I do want to thank you personally for your service, Griz, and I will pray for your safety and others that put themselves in harms way to keep our society peaceful and safe.  Keep the faith and honor your oath.  
    • Can't go wrong with a Sig. At least I hope not as I just got one too. Now if we could only shoot them...... Congratulation!
    • A quick update, I picked up my gun yesterday from Jack at JT Custom Guns & Collectibles (https://www.jtcustomguns.com/).  The experience could not have been any better.  He was an hour and a half drive for me, which is far, but I would do it again in a heartbeat, and will probably have to when my wife's permits arrive.  I had never purchased a gun before and had only dealt with Jack over the phone and over the internet, so I was really nervous heading there initially, but his reputation on here and reviews online were exceptional.  Even so, it isn't every day you head over to a person's house to buy a gun....  As soon as I met Jack, my mind was at ease.  He was extremely friendly in person, very knowledgeable and professional.  Knowing that I was a first time gun buyer, he really went out of his way to make me feel at ease with the process and to educate me on my gun and guns in general.  He showed me how to take down the gun, how I would clean it, oil it and put it together.  We reviewed some issues I could experience when I'm at the range and how to troubleshoot it, reminding me several times that if I really get stuck to just give him a call or facetime him.  Knowing I had kids in the house, he provided me some literature regarding gun safety and security/education.  He then made a few suggestions on guns my wife could check out to ease her into the sport.  I don't really have a first hand point of reference, but talking to family members and friends, they never experienced the kind of patience and thorough 1-on-1 interaction with any gun dealers they've bought from.   Overall, if you have a good idea about what you want, I would highly recommend giving Jack a call.  His prices are good, he loves the sport and you can truly tell his priority is to make sure your gun buying experience is a good one. Here she is, I named her Stella.
    • should have built a 14.5 inch other    Worse case you pin a muzzle break and stock if things change.. but for now enjoy the fact it's an other.. 
    • There is nothing official from the ATF that states a brace must meet a 13.5" lop, so you don't have to follow that.  The brace is considered a removable accessory and has no bearing on the classification of the firearm.  Since its a brace, there is no LOP. Of all the ATF letters, not a single one measured lop.
